    Amazing fantastic incredible: a marvelous memoir

    Lee, Stan

    In this gorgeously illustrated, full-color graphic memoir, Stan Lee--comic book legend and cocreator of Spider-Man, the X-Men, the Avengers, the Incredible Hulk, and a legion of other Marvel superheroes--shares his iconic legacy and the story of how modern comics came to be. Stan Lee is a man who needs no introduction. The most legendary name in the history of comic books, he has been the leading creative force behind Marvel Comics, and has brought to life--and into the mainstream--some of the world's best-known heroes and most infamous villains throughout his career. His stories--filled with superheroes struggling with personal hang-ups and bad guys who possessed previously unseen psychological complexity--added wit and subtlety to a field previously locked into flat portrayals of good vs. evil. Lee put the human in superhuman and in doing so, created a new mythology for the twentieth century. In this beautifully illustrated graphic memoir--illustrated by celebrated artist Colleen Doran--Lee tells the story of his life with the same inimitable wit, energy, and offbeat spirit that he brought to the world of comics. Moving from his impoverished childhood in Manhattan to his early days writing comics, through his military training films during World War II and the rise of the Marvel empire in the 1960s to the current resurgence in movies, Amazing Fantastic Incredible documents the life of a man and the legacy of an industry and career.

    The Blithedale romance

    Hawthorne, Nathaniel 1804-1864.

    A tale of failed possibilities and multiple personal betrayals as it explores the contrasts between what characters espouse and what they actually experience in an "ideal" community. The theme of unrealized sexual possibilies serves as a counterpoint to the other failures at Blithedale: clas and sex distinctions are not eradicated, and communal work on the farm proves personally unrewarding and economically disastrous.

    The ghost in my brain: how a concussion stole my life and how the new science of brain plasticity helped me get it back

    Elliot, clark

    The dramatic story of one man's recovery offers new hope to those suffering from concussions and other brain traumas. In 1999, Clark Elliott suffered a concussion when his car was rear-ended. Overnight his life changed from that of a rising professor with a research career in artificial intelligence to a humbled man struggling to get through a single day. At times he couldn't walk across a room, or even name his five children. Doctors told him he would never fully recover. After eight years, the cognitive demands of his job, and of being a single parent, finally became more than he could manage. As a result of one final effort to recover, he crossed paths with two brilliant Chicago-area research-clinicians--one an optometrist emphasizing neurodevelopmental techniques, the other a cognitive psychologist--working on the leading edge of brain plasticity. Within weeks the ghost of who he had been started to re-emerge. Remarkably, Elliott kept detailed notes throughout his experience, from the moment of impact to the final stages of his recovery, astounding documentation that is the basis of this fascinating book. The Ghost in My Brain gives hope to the millions who suffer from head injuries each year, and provides a unique and informative window into the world's most complex computational device: the human brain"-- Provided by publisher.

    This is your brain on music: the science of a human obsession

    Levitin, Daniel J.

    Explores the connection between music--its performances, its composition, how we listen to it, why we enjoy it--and the human brain. Reveals how composers exploit the way our brains make sense of the world, why we emotionally attach to music we listen to as teenagers, why 10,000 hours of practice, not talent, makes virtuosos, and how insidious jingles get tuck in our heads.
